“The Ruined Cast” / Dash Shaw – demo teaser from Howard Gertler on Vimeo.

Dash Shaw and Frank Santoro have been working on this teaser for THE RUINED CAST, a new Shaw animation project which includes the Shavian staple of a family in crisis near a body of water, and looks very mind trippy. The final product will be a full length animated feature to be directed by Shaw and produced by Howard Gertler and John Cameron Mitchell. Warning: NSFW if your W does not like male frontal.

INDIEwire has more:

“The story revolves around a new technology that allows people to wear other people’s boides,” Shaw told indieWIRE earlier this month. “The body they wear also affects the person who is wearing it, and this is wrapped around a family story.” Shaw said that the setting is a “trophy city in the future.” Not just figuratively, but literally. The city is encased in a trophy that is akin to a gated community. “The people who live there think of it as an idyllic place,” Shaw added.
